RFA Young Professionals Network

The Renewable Fuels Association’s Young Professionals Network (YPN) was formed in July 2020 and is dedicated to bringing together innovative and dedicated young professionals from across the U.S. ethanol industry. The YPN is a community of young leaders with a common goal to advance their respective businesses forward, build new relationships, and work with one another to identify new opportunities that grow and strengthen the renewable fuels industry.

The YPN hosts events year-round that are exclusively for YPN members and focus on networking, leadership, improving operations, and finding new and innovative approaches to building the market for ethanol.
